Happy Kid Goats
kid goats patiently
thinking golden thoughts of life
enjoying the sun
both wondering what comes next
soon they were moving again
nanny the mother
bleating out loudly mealtime
both quickly suckling
enjoying the rich sweet milk
next would be rest time for them
Sonnetina Cinque is written in two parts (though not necessarily two stanzas). The first part presents a question or statement, and the second part answers the question or counters the statement.
So any 5 lines poetry could be used, when doubled, to form a Sonnetina Cinque: I’m using the Tanka form — unrhymed verse with syllabic count: 5-7-5-7-7-5-7-5-7-7
Sonnetina Cinque is:
- A decastich (10-line poem) written in two 5-line segments (quintains). They may be written as two stanzas (with a break in between), but more often it is a single stanza of 10 lines.
- The first segment gives a statement or sets up a question.
- The second segment gives a counter-statement to the first or answers the question.
